I believe you mean 'germane'.

Between a 295 and a 5870, if you can actually get a 5870, it is the superior choice. It offers better upgrade options in terms of adding another card, has newer features, and costs less, while offering performance that closely rivals the 295 (I refuse to make claims about which one offers superior performance; I only claim they are closely matched).

As far as the card goes, definitely go for the HD5870. If it doesn't fit in the case, get out the Dremel!
